Drama between Strictly pros Kevin and Karen Clifton just weeks before show returns

Orlaith Condon

Reality TV season is well under way.

With Love Island already behind us, CBB in full swing and Bake Off returning to our screens this week, it’s clear that reality TV is dominating our screens right now.

Another show that’s just about to return is Strictly Come Dancing, and with the lineup having been released, many are already wondering who might be hit with the Strictly curse this year.

Well, one couple who are finding themselves in the middle of even more drama before the show has even aired is Kevin and Karen Clifton.

The pair ended their marriage earlier this year but continued to work alongside each other on different projects until now.

Kevin has reportedly dropped Karen from the lineup of his upcoming tour.

Kevin heads back out on the road for his Burn The Floor tour next year and is said to have dropped Karen from the lineup and will headline the event solo.

“They tried to keep dancing together but it simply didn’t work,” a source told Mail on Sunday.

“So Kevin took the decision to go off touring on his own.”

The pair will continue their work on Strictly Come Dancing, however, which is due back on our screens on September 8.

Kevin and Karen married in July of 2015 after four years together.

The pair confirmed their split in March of this year following months of speculation.
